Good-natured adventure and definitely silly, it makes you wish we still had Chris Farley around to entertain us.
Make some popcorn, settle in for a good time, and be ready to smile with Almost Heroes.
I, personally, do not think "Almost Heroes" is a great movie, but it does incorporate a lot of good light-hearted humor and many quotable lines. This movie's downfall comes from a collection of sources; the screenplay can be a little boring and the chemistry among the cast just doesn't quite "click." It is not one I watch often; when I'm in a Farley mood I usually go for "Tommy Boy." However, if you are a Chris Farley fan, I would recommend buying this DVD for nostalgic purposes and a few good laughs. Below I have included a short summary of the plot in hopes that it might help anyone `on the fence' about whether to purchase the movie or maybe just rent. Good luck!
